Submission + - Iran Opens Its First Nuclear Power Plant (voanews.com) 1

pickens writes: VOA reports that Russian and Iranian engineers have begun loading fuel into Iran's first nuclear power plant located in the southern city of Bushehr amid international fears that Iran will use the facility to make nuclear weapons, a charge both Tehran and the Kremlin vehemently deny. Officials say it will take about two to three months for the plant to start producing electricity once all of the fuel rods have been moved into the reactor and that the production capacity of the plant will initially be 500 megawatts but will eventually increase to 1,000 megawatts. Earlier this year, Washington criticized Russia for going ahead with the planned opening of the plant amid global disagreement and concern over Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program. Moscow did however back a fourth round of sanctions against Tehran, which called for Iran to stop uranium enrichment.
